| Cut content|
The subject of this article, Challenge Mode, has been cut from the final version of a Battlefield game.
Challenge Mode was a gamemode that was to be included in Battlefield Vietnam but was later cut before the final release. The mode allowed players to play by themselves and complete a series of missions against enemy bots. Some of these missions ranged from defending a flag against enemies for 3 minutes with only a pistol, or capturing all the flags on a map using only a helicopter.
Accessing the cut content Edit
The challenge feature is actually intact, just hidden from menu.
One way to access the challenges menu is to run the game with argument "+goToInterface 9", e.g.
BfVietnam.exe +restart 1 +goToInterface 9
